October 17, 2005, 00:59
Hi guys,

Need a really clear picture or drawing of Israeli Fal markings on receiver. Most important the IDF crest that is marked on thier Fals. Would like to get it engraved on a Izzy HB possibly. Please let me know if you have done this to your Fal or if you have a pic of the markings. Thanks Much, AK :]

Here's a photo of an early Israeli HB that shows the IDF crest fairly well. Its not my photo, just one I came across. Later production receivers have different lettering to the left of the crest and a few more stamps. I have a a photo of one (again, not mine) but it is not that clear. I'll plug it in as well following this post.

Hey guys, about the IDF markings I think it's a good idea to ask for a translation. I thougt that the markings were different on a light versus heavy model.

I have a DSA type 1 rec. at TOM SAWYER MANUFACTURING that is going to have the Israeli markings engraved on the mag well. Check with member Likemopar he is the owner of the company and has done some engraving for members here. As soon as I get it back I'll post pics. I'm going to build an Izzy light barrel clone.

Keep in touch, I'd like to see your project as it develops.

Odd, isn't it, that the Israelis stamp the numbers left to right but the text is right to left. I would have thought they would have written numerically from right to left as well. Sure would make it easier.

It's amazing how quickly recent threads get lost in the noise...

Here is a the link to the "Israeli History/ID thread" from last month. I believe this thread is probably the best yet on the Israeli FAL here on the files:
Last months Israeli FAL ID/History thread (http://www.falfiles.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=182116)

Here is link to my personal Israeli FAL photo collection:

And the pic I posted a couple weeks ago outlining the Israeli FAL markings:
